Don retired from The David S. Ingalls Estate in Hunting Valley, Ohio and Jupiter Island, Fl., after over 55 years. The family is very grateful to the Ingalls for all the love and support they have given over these many years.
Don thanked the Good Lord every day for his life and for getting to see his grandchildren and great grandchildren grow up. He considered himself a lucky man, especially with the lottery. Those of us who knew and loved him recognize ourselves as the lucky ones. He loved singing and playing the harmonica and banjo and he loved making everyone smile and laugh.
Please wear a mask and hold your loved ones tight.
